Fellows will also get a monthly stipend. While the latest release does not mention the amount of the stipend. IIT-Madras had earlier informed that it can range between Rs 40 and 60,000 per month. The RBC-DSAI is one of the few centres in the world for data science and AI applications in various engineering disciplines.

Prof B Ravindran, Head, RBC DSAI, said, “For fresh PhDs looking for an opportunity to explore new ideas and challenge the limits of what we know in data science, RBCDSAI is willing to invest in their ideas, in the form of a post-doctoral fellowship.”

RBC-DSAI, claims the IIT-Madras, is one of the largest groups in India looking at networked data across different disciplines and the top Deep Reinforcement Learning group.
